This is very exciting for our students, and the opportunity this grant is providing for them to be agents of change in our community. They truly are the pioneers of this project, and in the words of Charmaine Smith, "they are creating a legacy" for future generations to engage the world around them.
Congratulations, Mrs. Genova and Mrs. Kearns!
